  • Overzealous spam control

    Wrote a post response with a link to an old thread within this forum and posted fine. Realised I linked to the thread rather than the specific post, so edited and corrected the link by removing the existing and reinserting the correct link. So still just the one link, and it's a link to another forum...

    Of course I don't blame the moderators. I posted here partly to vent sure, but also partly to see if the admin / operator of the forum can either relax it a bit or put in more fine grain spam control to not catch innocent posts while still keeping the spam out.

    Dont blame the UNPAID moderatrors.

    Blame the spammers that send 60% of all emails sent that has caused this situation.

    Well TIL the post one is editing doesn't even have to contain any link, just editing in quick succession is enough to trigger the spam filter pulling the post into moderation.

    I know I have fallen foul of exactly the same myself.
    edited a link and the new one went to moderation.

    Without going into too much detail this is a common spam tactic.
    Make a post with a genuine link that passes spam filters, then go back later and edit it to the spam link....

    It's not either or.

    Part of the problem is the speed of moderation, if more posts are going to get moderated, then they need more active or more in terms of numbers moderators. At the moment, a moderated post can sit for a couple of days before it's seen to. The same apply if there were...

    On another forum I visit regularly moderation like this used to happen frequently, and members often complained about their posts getting moderated.

    Now there are constant...

    It happens now and again.

    Hi,

    I'm a new member and have only made 1 post. It was a question about how to draw up a contract with a property investor however it's been flagged as spam. I'm not selling anything I'm just trying to get some advice.

    Can somebody take a look?

    Thanks.

    Please delete this thread, I've reworded my original enquiry as some people were mistaking it as some kind of public offer. It wasn't.
